The Macquarie Group leased building, which also won the award for office development, makes a stunning addition to the Sydney streetscape with its external diagonal steel structural system.

Property Council CEO Peter Verwer said: “The development of One Shelley Street, its concept, design, construction and operation has been a once-in-a-lifetime journey for Brookfield Multiplex, Macquarie Group, the design team, subcontractors, suppliers and individual workers on the project.
